The memorial was realistic to the times and the Fatigues (BDU) worn at the Vietnam War and being personally connected during those times as a 91C.

It's a statue with an important historic meaning. Nearby the three soldiers statue and many other memorials around it, it's a must stop when nearby

This is a very important monument, as it honors the women who served during the Vietnam War, and the nurses who assisted and cared for the wounded....

A great statue that honors the women who served during the war. They may not have been on the front lines but that doesn't make them any less heroes than our soldiers. They still risked their lives to save others and this statue honors that.

Moving story told by a sculpture of three nurses assisting a critically wounded soldier. The guide of our USA Guided Tours evening trip brought this life sized bronze to life for us. What an amazing place to visit.

This is a small memorial compared to Vietnam War Memorial , there are women on the walls of that memorial, it is just like Arlington Cemetery where women are finally recognized for their contributions. The sculpture is very symbolic and it is nice to see...More

This memorial has no names, and it doesn't need them because the quality of the sculpture is such that you can't help but understand the position that serving women find themselves in during wartime, and of course the echoes of Pieta sculptures extend the meaning...More

My lady is a VA nurse. A slight breeze had deposited small blossoms o'er this monument. She was speechless, as was I. Few of the monuments are such artistically-rendered paeans to sacrifice as this.
